Kitchen and Floor Renovation: Day One

October 5, 2016

My stomach was in knots this morning, with a combination of excitement and nerves.  We've been planning this renovation practically since we moved in and now it's finally happening! I can't wait to show you the progress so far but first, I wanted to document how we're living during the process.  We had to clear out all our living spaces so that the tile floor can come up so we're living in pretty cramped quarters for now.

 The master bedroom is now the living room-office- master bedroom

A Week in Packed Lunches

September 30, 2016

Bag or bought- the great question in school lunches.  Right now, I'm making packed lunches for Sky and Fire every day and while I don't enjoy the time and mental energy it takes to do it, I do like that I know what the kids are eating.
  I've made Sky's before (and blogged about it here and here ) but the big challenge for me right now is pack food that the kids will eat with packing a whole bag of processed food.  Although both kids would love to eat peanut butter and jelly for lunch every day as long as it was made on white bread, I do to try to send something different every day so that they're getting a good variety of food in their diet.
  Here's what a week in packed lunches looks like at our house:
